I’m a J.D. candidate at the University of Iowa College of Law. I graduated from Drake University in December 2014 with bachelor’s degrees in news-Internet journalism and English writing.
During my 1L summer, I worked as a legal extern in the General Counsel’s Office at the Minnesota Department of Human Services in St. Paul, where I wrote an internal memorandum and a final order on a contested case regarding foster care licensure.
During my time at Drake, I ran the campus newspaper, The Times-Delphic. I even dabbled in mobile app development.
While at Drake, I also realized my passion for language. I have a writing degree with a concentration in creative nonfiction.
I worked as communications coordinator at the Science Center of Iowa in downtown Des Moines for three years between undergrad and law school. My lifelong love of museums led me there as an intern in May 2014, and I started working full-time at SCI in January 2015.
